Hear from a Scottish Franchisee

 “I was keen to run my own business and focused on opportunities that could offer me accelerated growth. Signs Express were and continue to be, market leaders within the sector, hence their appeal.

Banks view franchisees more favourably than start-up businesses as there’s less risk involved, so obtaining funding was relatively straight forward.

People who are driven, have a passion for working hard and are able to learn quickly should most certainly consider a franchise with Signs Express.

Being a franchisee has given my family a good lifestyle both in terms of financial benefits and time. As I now have a larger team working for me, I can reap the lifestyle benefits of this business”  – Steve McMurray, Signs Express (Falkirk)
